Navarro Wins His First Race
LAUREL, MD. 8-7-09---Apprentice rider Joshua Navarro won aboard just his fifth lifetime mount when Fifty Two in a Row captured the sixth race this afternoon at Laurel Park.
Sent to post at 9-1 for owner-trainer John Alecci, Fifty Two in a Row raced outside the speed before Navarro pushed his mount to the fore, then out finished Marciella to secure the victory. The filly paid $21.20.
As he returned to the jockey’s quarters, Navarro received the traditional good-natured dowsing of water and talcum powder from his fellow riders to celebrate his first win.
